Chances are you have heard this term a time or two in the office.

Sub-lux-a-tion (subˌləkˈsāSH(ə)n)

So what exactly is a Subluxation?

If we look at the how the World Health Organization defines the Subluxation complex it says…

“…motion segment (spinal bone) dysfunction which incorporates the interaction of pathological changes in the nerve, muscle, ligamentous, vascular and connective tissue.”

So put a little more plainly, it is when one or more spinal bones lose proper alignment, motion and overall function leading to negative affects on your muscles, ligaments, nerves and blood vessels.

And here’s the kicker, Only about 15 to 20% of the nerves in your body transmit pain. So you could have subluxations negatively impacting your nerve flow to various organs or other parts of your body and Not Even Know It.

And that is why Express Chiropractic was created. A convenient way to get your spine checked and stay subluxation free – even in the absence of pain.

In other words being preventative and proactive about maintaining optimal health rather than being reactive to pain.

And that brings us to another popular definition by the World Health Organization

The WHO definition of Health:

“A complete state of physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
